Iโ€™m talking about putting your hair up in a bun...& sometimes with some questionable smells & maybe if youโ€™re more on the oily side your hair feels like an olive oil grease party...party of 1!

Greasy roots? This dry shampoo is perfect for u!
Amika perk up dry shampoo: the perfect dry shampoo in an adorable can for anyone looking to step up their hair game! This claims to be a dry shampoo formulated without talc or aluminum that refreshes the hair by absorbing excess oil and adding volume. This product naturally cleans and deodorizes hair while building volume. I have an insane amount of hair, that is very thick, and I tend to get an oily scalp within 1-2 days after washing. To extend my hair style, to go a few days in between washes, I love to use the perk up dry shampoo. I have found that the key to using a dry shampoo (in my opinion) is to apply it at night before bed! This way, all night long the shampoo works to absorb excess oil. Before bed, I like to section my hair and spray this directly on the roots. After it is all applied I just run my fingers through my hair to distribute product. Sometimes I like to run a comb through to really work the product into my hair. When I wake up in the morning, my roots are voluminous and refreshed. I also love the scent of this product! The product packaging is in an aerosol can, of course beautifully decorated in signature Amika fashion, and is super easy to use! I highly recommend this product for oily scalp concerns and anyone looking to extend their hair style! amika: - Perk Up Dry Shampoo

First ever non-aerosol dry shampoo.. Iโ€™m in love
I canโ€™t believe I never noticed the lack of dry shampoo is in non aerosol cans?! How awful for the environment and for my lungs. I didnโ€™t know how big of a difference a different style packaging, would make! I have been completely converted to this adorable squeeze tube style dry shampoo! The Ouai super dry shampoo: claims to be super absorbent and to instantly soak up oil to revive the scalp. Briogeo scalp revival charcoal + biotin dry shampoo: claims to be a unique charcoal infused dry shampoo that detoxifies, cleanses, and balances the scalp for optimal health. My scalp is extremely dry and itchy ALL THE TIME. My roots still manage to get very oily after a few days and I need a good dry shampoo to rescue me. The thing with dry shampoos is that they can be very drying and leave a lot of build up in your hair, causing itchiness. I have finally met my perfect match, a dry shampoo that does the job but also leaves your scalp more balanced and soothed, hi briogeo! I personally find, that using the ouai dry shampoo, is such a pain! The aerosol can is extremely powerful and deposits way too much product on my roots, leaving a white film. I also find the scent to be overpowering along with the extremely dry finish it leaves on your roots. Itโ€™s just too much! Enter the briogeo dry shampoo, with squeeze tube packaging, that makes it so easy to use the perfect amount of product. You squeeze the product โ€œpuffingโ€ it directly into your roots. The scent is very subtle and smells like tea tree. It also leaves my hair perfectly clean without the white cast. I honestly only want to recommend the briogeo one, but I know that many people need HEAVY DUTY oil control when theyโ€™re reaching for a dry shampoo. In that case, I would recommend the ouai one. Like many beauty items, it comes down to personal preference! Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo OUAI - Super Dry Shampoo

February Favorites ๐Ÿ“
Might as well post my February Faves! @peterthomasrothofficial Pumpkin Enzyme Mask- this is my second tub and while not having it for a while, I realized I missed it! Similar results as the DE Babyfacial but smells like pumpkin pie! You can definitely feel the spiciness while itโ€™s on and the results are fantastic! @theouai Super Dry Shampoo- this is my second bottle, itโ€™s so goooood! I really donโ€™t have to use dry shampoo for the next few days after spraying this, and it prolongs my hair wash for at least another two days! @olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner- this makes my hair feel and look amazing, especially after I dyed it! @lancomeofficial Skin Feels Good Skin Tint- Lancome makes some amazing foundations! Iโ€™ve been loving the light/medium coverage this gives and I love tubes, theyโ€™re so easy to use! @hourglasscosmetics Vanish Airbrush Concealer- people either love or hate this concealer but Iโ€™m so impressed! It looks good all day and doesnโ€™t look cakey or dry! @freshbeauty Sugar Lychee Perfume- I need all of their perfumes now! This has such a unique and fresh, sweet scent, Iโ€™ve been obsessed! @maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara- I forgot how good drug store mascaras really are and this one reminded me! It gives crazy volume and length and itโ€™s super black! @morphebrushes Mega Matte Lipstick โ€œBoy Toyโ€- the formula isnโ€™t my favorite but the shade is one of a kind, gives me 90s concealer lips vibes and Iโ€™m loving it! @Sephora Flawless Airbrush #56- This brush is the best for blending out concealer, Sephora brushes have been my obsession lately! And theyโ€™ve been on sale so I canโ€™t pass them up!

My life has been changed. Shoo
My life has been changed. Shook. Altered. For the better. The Amika Perk up dry shampoo has helped me achieve the hair goals of my wildest dreams and I didnโ€™t even think it was possible. Iโ€™ve always been addicted to Batiste dry shampoo, and when it comes to the drug store I still think thatโ€™s the best. But after trying the Amika dry shampoo Iโ€™m really not sure I can go back ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Personally, I like to spray dry shampoo in my hair everyday (even when itโ€™s freshly washed) because I feel like it gives my hair extra life & helps give my curls grip. Not only does this product do that, but it makes my hair feel completely refreshed as if I just washed it every time I use it! I also find that I use WAY less product than I did with batiste. No joke I used to buy a can of batiste per week which is like $10! With the Amika one, a little goes such a long way and Iโ€™m definitely saving myself money in the long run. To top it all off, the smell is INSANE. It literally smells like the most divine hair product Iโ€™ve ever used, and it lasts all day. I find myself catching a whiff of my hair hours later and am shocked that the smell is still lingering. I seriously canโ€™t get enough!

Perk Up Dry Shampoo
amika:-Perk Up Dry Shampoo
I recently bought this colour
I recently bought this colour wheel-inspired product, the Kevin Murphy Shimmer. Me Blonde. This shine spray contains optical brighteners designed to add radiance to blonde hair. According to the company, Australian fruit ingredients also help elasticity and moisture levels. I really hate to be negative so I will try to be as positive as I can about this product. Firstly, it looks great in the bottle. And I mean really great. Once shaken, the optical brighteners (small particles of purple mica) swirl around in a genuinely mesmerising way and could definitely save you money on a lava lamp if you were into that sort of thing and didnโ€™t mind shaking it every 30 seconds. Secondly, once the strong smell of alcohol has dissipated, this has a Chanel No 5-type fragrance which almost makes it a light hair perfume. My problem with the spray though (and this is absolutely my fault for not having checked the ingredients before I bought it), is that denaturised alcohol is the product's second ingredient. While denaturised alcohol (one which has been altered to make it un-drinkable) is an extremely effective quick-drying, degreasing and sanitising agent, these are not generally qualities I look for on my already dry hair. After smelling the alcohol on the very first spray and then reading the ingredients I was loathe to put this all over my hair, but for the sake of providing a thorough review I did give it a go. For me these results were not particularly impressive either, sadly. While it certainly does add some amount of shine and perhaps a slight brightening effect, I didn't notice any of the moisturising or repairing properties it boasts and my hair is now a little drier than normal. As I said, it's absolutely on me for not checking the ingredients before I bought but sadly this will go down in my whoops-won't-buy-that-again list. Plus points: Looks very pretty. Sulphate, paraben and cruelty-free Minuses: For me, pretty much everything else about the product, sadly. This may just be particular hair type it doesn't suit, however.

Dry conditioner?!
Dry conditioner?!
So Iโ€™ve used dry shampoo but never dry conditioner until I met this beauty from Amika. I lightly spray this on the mid shaft to ends of dry hair and my split ends and unruly dry hair is completely manageable again. It adds a very light mist of dry oil that doesnโ€™t make my hair greasy or weigh it down. For the professional quality, all of amikaโ€™s products are quite affordable. amika: - Silken Up Dry Conditioner

try the olaplex No3 I have never tried this brand before and this repair mask couldnโ€™t have come at a better time as my hair is in pretty poor condition. No3 is a pre shampoo treatment that repairs broken bonds of the hair cause by heat & chemical damage, whilst making it stronger, healthier and shinier. Suitable for all hair types for home use. I noticed the difference after the first use and after the second use my hair is well on its way to being healthy again. It is way more alive, the ends arenโ€™t as dry and the dullness has been replaced with a beautiful mirror shine. I am so impressed and will definitely continue to use and try more from this brand.
